FL Gov. Rick Scott to test “Crazification Factor”
He’s only been in office for about six months, but Governor (P)Rick Scott of Florida has hit rock bottom, besting near-universally loathed assholes like Wisconsin’s Scott Walker, Ohio’s John Kasich and Illinois’ Pat Quinn to grab the nation’s most unpopular governor title. How pathetic is Scott? He’s down to 29% approval, which is well within the Crazification Factor margin of error.
Like I said, he’s only been governor for six months! The Scott Administration may offer an important test for the Crazification Factor, which holds that approximately 27% to 29% of Americans (and perhaps people worldwide, I dunno) are either batshit crazy or so irrational and indifferent to their own interests that they might as well be. Think Bush dead-enders, hardcore Palinites, Alan Keyes voters. That crazy.
Since we’ve got three and a half years left under Scott and he’s probably not going to suddenly stop acting like an imperious, greedy, compassion-free asshole, we’ll get to see how the Crazification Factor theory holds up. If Scott’s approval ratings sink even lower, it could have far-reaching implications for brain-injury regeneration and psychosis recovery research.
